WIihI u Uuiiiiiu lllil Wlieu I first cauio to New Vurk, at he nge of twelve years, lo seek my foi tune, I can call myself a precious cbnp without danger of being accused of an unusual amount of self-appreciation I was quick to learn every thing, the bad us well as the good. My employer used profane language. 1 picked up the oaths that he dropped with the naturaluess that surprised even myself. The boys in the office all chewed tobacco. This was little the hardest Job 1 ever attempted, but alter two weeks of nauBea and Inde scribable sitoinach-wrenchltigs, f came oil' victorious, and could getaway with niv paper a day with tbe best of then). One afternoon I was sent with a not from my employer to a house in 'he upper part of the city. I hadn't anything to read, but I had plenty of tobacco, and with that I proposed to entertain myself during the two or three hours I must spend In the pas sage. For some distance I did not no tice who weie beside me, but by-and-by a lady said very softly and silent Iciitly: "Would you please, little boy, lie more careful ? I am going to a arty this afternoon, and 1 should hate lo have my dress spoiled.'' I looked into her face. It was the sweettst face 1 ever saw. Pale, earnest and loving ; to my boyi.-h heart it was the countenauce of an ungel. There was vtry little that I could say. I managed to dispose of the to bacco, however, and wiped my mouth very carefully, all of which 1 felt cer tain she mi ir a lid mentally commented upon. "Have you a mother, little boy ?" she asked iu the same tone. "No, ma'am," I answered, and I felt my throat tilling up, tin .i knew I must swallow mighty fast to keep from sobbing." " You have a father, then. I sup pose?" she kept on. " No, ma'am, no father " " Brothers aud sisters V" ' Neither, ma'am." " Then the little boy is all alone in the world?" " Alone, ma'am." " How long has your mother been dead?" aud the dear wotuau looked away from my face, and waited until I could speak. "Two years," I answered. " And you loved her," came next. " Dearly," was all I could say. She was silent a moment, and then said, so sweetly oh, I shall never for get it: " And what do you think your dear mother would say how do you think she would feel to kuow that her lit tle boy was guilty of such a disgusting habit as this V" pointing to my cheek where the telltale quid had vainly tiied lo stand its ground. " I must ieVH now," she continued " but here i- my card, aud if you come to me 'iih-i any evening 1 shall be glad to i e . uu, ami perhaps We can be (if -er-vi, a-li o'her." -in- foe me her little gloved hand, ml o ,,i ilying day I snail never for-t-tthe lo-ation ol that moment. I i 1 1 n t l ar to pari p h her : wi th orn in i I h It tint I could do nothing ; with In r, I 0 iiihl Kfnw lo it man's es '.i i a ni iii in the true sense if the it;. From that moment tobacco never .aj-sed my lips. As soon as I could summon cournge I calleil upon that lady. Well do I leinetnber how my heart beat as I waited iu tiie elegant parlor foi tier to come down ; and how awkward I felt as I followed my guide to the sitting room. Here she got. at every point of my life, and before 1 bade her good bye it was arranged that I should spend two evenings of each week at her house, aud study on these occas ions just what she thought best. No lover ever looked forward to meet with the mistress of his heart and more ar dently than I did to these meetings with my friend. 1 grew careful of my personal ap pearance, careful of my conversation, and strove iu every way to be worthy of this noble friendship. Two years passed in this delightful manner two years that made me. My friend not only attended to my studies, striving alt the while to sow the right kind of spiritual seeit, but she procured me a situation witli a particular friend of hers where I remain to this day. No body but Ood knows what I owe this woman, liming the last three months of those two years I noticed that she grew constantly pale uud thin ; she never was betrayed in speaking of her--.11 Sometimes when I would ask I her if she felt worse than usual, she I wool. I rep'y : "Oh.no! I am only a little tired I thai is all." On,- evening she ke t me by her sofa much longer than her custom, while she arranged lessons and laid out work enoiudi, it seemed to me, for months. by so much to-night I inquir- ed. conscious that my heart ached, and vaguely suspecting the cause. " Ucc.iuse, dear," she answered, "I ! do not want you to come for the next jwetk, and 1 am anxious that you sn, old have stiRlcient work to untici-pie-iding .n. d tha !(, i pate, as well s to keep you busy. I I thtnk I cm tru-t vi.u to l.e a t'ooil bov, John?" ''I ilnnk you can, ma'uiii," I tiu j swereil alums sobbing. "If I shoul I see your mother, my buy. befoi'M lonif, what shall I say to her for y on ."' Then I knew all, and my grief kin- v no bounds. It is no u-e to go on. -tie died two days after ; and when I hear folks saying, "There's a woman at tho bottom of it," I feel like telling the whole world what a woman did forme.

Morgan, lep uty irand Chief Templar of Kast 1 emu ..see, to organize a I.ode nt He vieiville, and the doctor will Bend ISrn. Goldman to organize it as soon as possible. The order has been fortunate in obtaining the services of Mr. Gold man, as he is decidedly the right man iu the right place, and will accomplish a great deal of good in the temperance cause. It has been decided bv Holston Lodge, No. 3d, I. O. G. f., that on next Monday night the Lodge would celebrate Its third anniversary, at which time it Is hoped there will be a full turnout, and It is especially desir ed that all the charter members be present. It will certainly cause them to re-join wien they see the results of their labors. For two years it was an up hill work, aud often there were barely enough members present to have a quorum, and some few times not enough. The first year forty-eight members were initiated into the order, the second year, and the year in which the Lodge had its hardest struggle, only fourteen initiations took place. The last year one hundred aud flfty four persons were initiated into the order, ind the Lodge now numbers some 175 or lsiO members in good stand ing. Among them are persons who for years were addicted to the use of intoxicating- beverages, but who now stand as monuments of the glorious influence of this noble order. May the good work go on, until there be not one left to ndvocate the cause of in temperance. The Hrldnl Wine-Cup. The following story was read at the Holston Lodge, I. O. O. T., on last Monday night by a young lady, In such a touching) feeling manner as to cause a tear to glisteu in many an eye. Though, many of our readers may have read it before, it will hear read ing again : "Pledge with wine, pledge with wine," cried the young and thought less Hnrvey Wood. "Fledge with wine," ran through the bridal party. The beautiful bride grew pale; the decisiva hour had come. !She pressed her white hands together, and the leaves of she bridal wreath trembled on her brow; her breath came quick er, and her heart beui wilder. " Yes, Marion, lay aside your cru pies lor this once," said thejudge in a low tone, going towards his daughter; " the company expect it. Do not so seriously infringe upon the rules of et iquette. Iu your own home do as you please; but in mine, for this once, jilease 7ir." l'ouriug a brimming cup, they held it, with tempting smiles, towards Ma rion. She was very pale, though com posed ; and her hand shook not as, smiling back, she gracefully accepted the ciystal tempter, mid raised il to her lips. But scarcely had she done so when every hand was arrested by her piercing exclamation of " Oh ! how terrible." " What is it ?" cried one and ull, thronging together, for ahe had slow ly carried the glass at arm's length, and was fixedly ri gurding it. " Wait," she answered, while a light, which seemed inspired, shone from her dark eves " wait, and I will lell you. I see," she added slowly, point ing one linger at the sparkliug ruby liquid, "a sight that beggars all de scription ; and yet, listen ; I will paint it for you, if I can. It is a lovely spot ; tall mouiiiains crowned with verdure rise in awful sublimity around ; a rie erruns through, aud bright ilowers grow to tliu water's edge. Hut there a group of Indiana gather ; they Hit to and Iro, with something like sorrow upon their dark brows. And in their midst lies a manly form, but hischeek, how deathly! his eyes wild with the fitful lire of fever. One friend stands before him nay, I should say, kueels ; for see, he is pillowing that poor head upon his breast. " Oh! the high, holy-lookiug brow. Why should death mark it, aud lie so young '! Look, how he throws back the damp curls ! See him clasp his hands ! Hear his tiuiiling shrieks for life! Mark how he clutches at the form of his companion, imploring to be saved ! Oh ! heir him call piteous ly his father's name, see him twine his lingers together, as he shrieks for his sister his only sister the twin of his soul weeping for him iu his distant native land. " Ktc !" she exclaimed, while the bridal party shrank back, the untasted wine trembling in their lalteringgrasp, aud the Judge fell overpowered upon his seat "see! his arms are lifted to heaved lie prays how wildly ! for mercy ; hot fever rushes through his veiiio. He moves not ; his eyes are set iu their sockets ; dim are their pier- cing glances ; in vain his 'riend whis- pers the name of father and sister death is there. Death and no soft hand, no irenlle voice, to soothe him. His head sinks back : one convulsive shudder he is dead !" A (rroan ran through the assembly ; bo vivid was her description, so uu earthly her look, -o inspired her man ner, that wbal she described Kecnied actually to have taken place then and thew. They noticed, also, mat the bride groom hid his face in his hands, ulld was weeping. " Dead !" sliu repealed airain, her lips ((uiverinu faster and faster, aud her voice more broken; "and there they scoop him a grave; and there, without a shroud, they lay him down in that damp, reeking earth, the only son of a proud father, the only idolized brother of a fond sister. There he lies, my father's son, my own twin brother, a victim to this deadly poison. "Father!" she exclaimed,; turning suddenly, while the teurs'raihed down her beau tiful cheeks " father, shall I drink it now ?" '1 he form of the old judge was con vulsed with agony. Jle raised not his head, but in a smothered voice he altered: ' No, no, my child ; no!" Hie lifted the glittering goblet, and, letting it suddenly fall to the lioor, it was dashed into a thousand pieces. Many a tearful eye watched her move ment, and instantaneously every w ine gla-s was transferred to the marble table on which it had been prepared. Then, us she looked ut the fragments of crybtal, she turned to the company, saying, " Iiet no friend hereafter who loves uie tempt me to peril my soul for wine. Not firmer aro the everlasting hills than my resolve, Ood helping uio, never to touch or tuste the poison cup. And he to whom J have given my hand, who watched over my brother's dying form in that last solemn hour, and buried the dear wanderer there by the rives t!.-v land of gold, will, I trust, sustain me In that resolve." Jlis glistening eyes, his sad, sweet smile, waa her answer. The Judge left the room, and when, an hour after, he returned, and with a more subdued manner look part In the entertainment of the bridal guests, tin one could fall to read that bo had determined In banish the enemy forever from his princely home.
